Anonymous Financial And Personal Advice
Here is a really big tip. Avoid credit cards period... you won't be needing them anyway. Your debit card will suffice and save you money.
The banks know you will be having money and they want a percentage of every transaction you make on your credit card. Just remember, you won't be needing perks for the most part, so don't get sucked in to the bank's BS.
Be smart, think smart, and stay out of the line of fire when it comes you way.
When your blessing comes, you won't need to invest and assume any of the post RV turmoil risks... so don't. And don't allow yourself to be talked into it. Everyone (or almost everyone) will want your money... one way or another. And there isn't anything that some (many) won't try in order to get some of it, if not all of it.
It would be better to give it away than allow someone the prideful advantage of taking it away from you. Help those whom really need your help... people you have known for some time, that God has placed across your path.

Allow your life to be your filter. Learn from it and do not try to reinvent the wheel... it is already round and what goes round comes round. Let the wheel pass you by... you don't want on that (un)merry-go-round.
Do set up a trust and keep most of what God has put in your hands in that trust, in order to shield yourself from spurious liability claims against you personally.
Research the banks that you choose. Look for solvency issues first and then check out customer complaints. Almost all banks have customer complaints because not everyone is wealthy and the poor don't rate at banks. So don't expect to find a clean slate anywhere. Look for the good reviews and make sure there are more good than bad.
Keep deposits in several currencies such as the Canadian Dollar, the Australian Dollar, the Singapore Dollar, or the Hong Kong Dollar. Also, maintain up to 10% in physical silver, platinum, and gold. That's it... don't do anything else post RV.
Oh... and lastly and most importantly... do not tell anyone about your new found wealth... at least not the amounts you received. People will know you came into some money because of a few major purchases... but let them think that it was minimal and that you spent almost all on your wish list.
When you do help others, old friends and family, do it anonymously through the trust you set up. People talk. Let them talk about the trust... not you personally.
If you do all the above and keep a low profile, the event horizon that comes down the pike will likely pass you over.
